TUCSON (Tucson News Now) - Chicanos Por La Causa is bringing holiday cheer to Tucson once again at the 30th Annual CPLC Para Los Niños Christmas Party this Saturday at the Kino Sports Complex from 10 a.m to 2 p.m.

The first 3,000 children that attend will receive a brand new toy and the opportunity to meet Santa Claus. Food, games and live entertainment are also part of the celebration.

CPLC has been holding annual holiday celebrations in Tucson, San Luis, and Phoenix.  Many of the children attending these events come from underprivileged families and the brand new toys they receive may be the only gift they get this holiday season.  This year, CPLC will distribute approximately 11,000 free toys and 11,000 candy-filled stockings at all three events combined. 

The party is free and open to the entire community.  It is sponsored by Blue Cross/ Blue Shield of Arizona, Cox Communications, Prensa Hispana, State Farm, Citi, and Univision Arizona.
